Reasons To See A Cardiologist
You should consider making an appointment to see a heart doctor if:
-Your family has a history of heart disease. This includes anyone in your family having a history of heart attack, stroke or heart failure. While lifestyle choices play a significant role in your chances of developing heart disease, genetics also can lead to an increased risk of cardiovascular issues.
-You have been diagnosed with a heart valve disease or an abnormal heart rhythm.
-You received an abnormally high calcium score of 100 or higher after undergoing a heart scan screening. If you have a score of 300 or more, it is especially advised to establish a relationship with a cardiologist for regular monitoring.
-You have high total cholesterol or high blood pressure. These are two major risk factors for heart disease, heart attack or stroke.
-You have diabetes. Diabetes significantly increases your risk of heart disease.
-You are or were a smoker. Smoking affects the flow of oxygen to the heart and increases heart rate, blood pressure, and risk of blood clots. It also damages the lining of the arteries.
-If you are concerned about your risk of heart disease, ask your primary care physician about seeing a cardiologist. You may even self-refer, if you choose, and make an appointment directly with a specialist.
